Ingredients (6)

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, chilled
  • 1/2 cup crème fraîche or sour cream
  • 2/3 cup (5 ounces) prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more as needed
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Summary

This sauce is usually served with a big, juicy steak for good reason: The pairing is magical. But that doesn’t mean it’s not delicious in other applications. Try it on a baked potato, as a sauce for shrimp, drizzled over roasted asparagus, or as a substitute for mayonnaise.

Instructions

Place heavy cream in a medium bowl and whisk until the cream starts to hold a line when you drag the whisk through it. Using a rubber spatula, fold in crème fraîche or sour cream, horseradish, chives, and salt. Season with pepper and additional salt as desired. Serve with Grilled Prime Rib or smear on a roast beef sandwich.
